The Bicycle Facilities Unit is responsible for the Caltrans bike program. Acting as the Department's bicycle advocate, the unit's objective is to improve safety and convenience for bicyclists. The unit provides policy, funding, planning and technical expertise in bicycle transportation in consultation with federal, state, and local transportation agencies, Caltrans headquarters and District staff, legislative staff, and the public.
CalTrans has a California Bicycle Advisory Committee
Formed by Caltrans in 1992, the California Bicycle Advisory Committee (CBAC) is composed of thirteen members who represent various California agencies and organizations. The committee provides guidance to Caltrans on bicycle issues. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of every other month starting with February. The Bicycle Facilities Unit provides staff support to the committee.
Typical CBAC issues:
* Signal timing * Bicycle lane striping * Bicycles on freeways
* Signage * Design standards for shared roadways
